AUSTRIA, Italy | 90 minutes | 2016

An immersion in carnival life, in the finest Italian neo-realist tradition. A social commentary that slowly evolves into a coming-of-age story, this engaging work is a heartfelt tribute to forgotten and vanished occupations. Dedicated to everyone who has lost a film job to digital, Mister Universo immerses us in the world of travelling circuses and sideshows. This strange journey – a search for the first Mister Universe of colour – celebrates art and life in a carnival world that endures on the margins of society.
